package, the deficit reduction. now i need congress to act, they have nine days to do it. >> john boehner spent today on recess, but his writing staff published a piece in "the wall street journal" accusing the president of raging against the budget he created. he led the republican house in voting for it, which some conservatives have not forgotten. byron york, chief political conservative columnist, wrote, john boehner describes the sequester as a policy that threatens the security, leads to the question, why would republicans support the measure that threatens national security and thousands of jobs. byron york continues the effect of the argument is to make obama seem reasonable. after all, the president certainly agrees with boehner that the cuts threaten national security and jobs. the difference is obama wants to avoid them. could the gop message on the sequester be anymore self-defeating. it made rush limbaugh uncharacteristically humble today. he had to admit there is something even he doesn't understand. >> boehner, echoing obama, in "the wall street journal," in answer to a que
-- the craziest of which is why doesn't the president -- why doesn't he call john boehner down to the white house for a meeting? why doesn't he call mitch mcconnell down to the white house for a meeting? oh, my god he hasn't met with john boehner so he can't be serious about stalling the sequester. what idiots! to repeat something like that. republicans are idiots to say it but reporters -- to repeat it. don't they remember during the first term how many meetings did president obama have? with john boehner. if you recall, he even came up to the capitol hill, he even talked to the house republican caucus trying to get their support for his stimulus package and boehner and mcconnell and eric cantor were down there at the white house for meeting after meeting after meeting and what do they do every single time they walk out of the meetings, they walked up to the microphones at the stakeout position and they trashed obama dumped on obama stabbed him in the back. they never went for anything that he proposed. john boehner then met privately with the president three different occasions three different
it's not a big deal. >> enough donkeys. now the elephants. >> john boehner shot back. quote, the president got his higher tax. $600 billion from higher earners with no spending cuts at the end of 2012. he also got higher taxes via obamacare. the president's sequester is the wrong way to reduce the deficit, but it is here to stay until washington democrats get serious about cutting spending. the government simply cannot keep delaying the inevitable and spending money it doesn't have. unquote. question, president obama wants to pin sequestration on the republicans. speaker boehner calls sequestration, as you saw, quote unquote, the president's sequester. is he right? >> yes, he is right, in that it was proposed by the president and by his folks when they had the budget impasse, as a way of i say, putting pressure on both sides at some point to deal with it. but our government is so dysfunctional we are at this particular stage now. the problem now is, where do we go from here in terms of this is going to undermine the confidence of the country in the government, and its abilit
speaker john boehner have it right when they say president obama has ownership of the sequestration cuts. >>> so where is everyone? this past weekend president obama was vacationing in flo florida. meanwhile, congress has left for for a weeklong forecast. >> march 1st is the deadline for sequestration, the automatic cuts that will put a heavy burden on our military. >> leon pa nnetta warned congre that failure to address the issue could lead to furloughs for 800,000 defense workers. in tonight's reality check sam brock tries to figure out who is responsible for these impending cuts. >> a lot of finger pointing, raj. wouldn't it be nice if elected officials did what they were elected to do? that's neither here nor there. leon pa nnetta's announcement oy brought more dialogue for sequestrati sequestration. what dialogue? lawmakers have given up on a solution and they're worried about who is to blame at this point. speaker john boehner and marco rubio point to president obama but there are major holes in that accusation. >> i see the threat of the furlough as very credible. i happen to be a
to essentially forego negotiations with john boehner for now. that only makes republicans angry. it's a complicated and dual edge strategy that is not sure it is going to work. march 1st, these cuts will go into place. we don't know when we will feel the impact for the end of march or april. we have time, but they have to come to the table at some point. >> nine days away. let's remind everybody how the president tried to rattle wages yesterday in demonstrating what the republican choices are. take a listen. >> border patrol agents will see hours reduced. fbi agents will be furloughed. federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go. air traffic controllers and airport security will see cut backs. they will add hundreds of thousands of americans to the unemployment roles. this is not an abstraction. people will lose their jobs. >> when this is mapped out time frame-wise, we say march 1st, but everyone is away right now. technically only four days to get it done and we will watch this be like an all nighter coming down to the last day. everybody around the country n
gotten a picture, you'll remember, when president obama played with house speaker john boehner. we it get a picture. in this instance, i think that there was a lot of interest in having a picture because, of course, it was an historic moment. this was the first time that the president played with tiger woods, and we are told, again, according to a golf reporter, that the president said to tiger that he was glad that he was playing better, so there was a lot of interest in what was happening and, of course, of seeing visual representation and at this point having gotten that. andrea. >> of course. questions occur. did they not permit a picture because it's tiger woods and because some people might object to tiger woods and the controversy of the past? is it because they didn't want to see the president -- show the president vacationing and he is intigs entitled to a vacation on a weekend we're facing the sequester and the congress is also vacationing? is it because it's his second term, and he is feeling more relaxed about doing things that he really always wanted to do? it's just raising
house speaker john boehner and senate gop leader mitch mcconnell yesterday, discussions were described as good but not progress. hundreds of thousands are looking at layoffs and smaller paychecks if those cuts take effect. >>> and the stalemate has taken to twitter for the president's increase in taxes and spending reductions. late thursday john boehner's spokeman tweeted to white house press secretary jay carney, quote was it balanced when the president got $600 billion in revenue with no spending cuts just last month? well, carney replied, saying in part, back in the real world, the president has signed $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction. >>> now, to a developing story in nevada where the manhunt continues this morning for the driver of a black range rover sport involved in a deadly shootout on the vegas strip. three people were killed including rapper kenneth cherry jr. after an altercation. police said the chase led to a car-to-car shooting spree with a maserati racing toward a red light. the maserati crashed into a taxi which burst into flames killing both drivers and a passenger.
. warning of dire consequences if the march 1st spending cuts kick in. john boehner says the sequester wasn't his idea, but should he try to stop it. murder rate hits a 50 year low, but the policy many credit for the achievement is once again underfire, could stop and frisk soon be a thing of the past. and just in time for the oscars it's the return of the hollywood black list. we'll take a closer look at the campaign against zero dark welcome to the journal editorial report. i'm paul gigot, with days to go. president obama turned up heat on republicans this week saying they would be to blame if across the board spending cuts take effect on march 1st, appearing on tuesday with firefighters, police officers, and other first responders, the president claimed the consequences of such cuts would be dire. >> people will lose their jobs. it will jeopardize our military readiness, eviscerate job creating investments, thousands of teachers and educators will be laid off. tens of thousands of parents will have to scramble to find child care for their kids. >> but in a wall street journal op-ed john
planned to impose furloughs, 800,000 civilian employees if the sequester hits, john boehner responded president obama is ultimately responsible for the military readiness and it's fair to ask, what is he doing to stop his sequester that would hollow out our armed forces. joining me now is kelly o'donnell. the president will kipitch this program that includes $50 billion for transportation infrastructure and a public-private partnership to attract financing that they have as a partnership to rebuild america and cutting red tape to get permits. sounds like a decent start. >> those are well-tested ideas. they like to see government deal with red tape and infrastructure is popular. those are solid ideas that the president can try to campaign on, if you will. he has the power of the office and the reach of the office that gives him a real advantage in this debate over the sequester cuts. being able to do those interviews across the country in key markets where there will likely be a profound impact and do an effect where he has himself surrounded by 50 responders. those are powerful queues
it? a funny thing happened. the truth popped out. john boehner threatens the cuts to the u.s. national security, thousands of jobs and more. boehner is right. these cuts were design today be so brutal, so awful that even extremist republicans would want to avoid them. and, yet, the hill reports today that republicans have decided o the requester is where they'll make their stand on spending cuts. it's downright crazy. republicans admit the cuts will threaten national security and kill jobs. but they refuse to stop them? it makes zero sense. >>> a new economic report warns these cuts could cause 700,000 workers to lose their jobs this year alone. >>> the pentagon today passed a plan to furlough 8,000 workers if the cuts take effect. it's shameful. and the president is fighting that. today, he gave interviews to 8 different tv shows around the country, demand gd the gop stop these spending cuts, and, instead, close loopholes for the rich. >> instead of us cutting education, mental health programs and a whole range of other things that are really important, we should be focus
to be scratching your head. we have that "wall street journal" op-ed from john boehner in which he says a week from now a dramatic new policy is sid to go into effect that threatens u.s. national security, thousands of jobs and more, and then byron york, from "the washington examiner" he put out a piece basically saying could the gop message on the sequester be any more self-defeating. he goes on to say about john boehner, instead he describes it as being a threat to national security, jobs he nevertheless supports it's not an argument likely to persuade millions of americans. how did john boehner get into such a corner? >> i think the whole republican party has gotten into a corner by letting the president off the hook. here's a president almost a spending addict, the debt has gone up dram lick. what nobody is talking about is we are taking this credit card and pasting it to the next gen wrags, which is unconscionable. there's always been a promise from one generation to the next we would leave america better and stronger. instead we're kicking the can down the road and telling them good luck. i t
the white house that today president obama called house speaker john boehner and senate majority leader mitch mcconnell to discuss the looming cuts. also, in less than 30 minutes, a group of house democrats will hold an unofficial hearing on the impact of the sequester. no republicans will be present. >> we wish that our republican colleagues would hold an official hearing to understand the terrible consequences of the sequester. unfortunately, our house republican colleagues haven't allowed us to have that kind of hearing so we're going to get this inputt and more unofficial manner. >> and in the past couple of hours, the president continued his campaign to pressure republicans. yesterday it was local tv stations. today, it was with african-american radio stations including joe madison, yolanda adams and al sharpton. >> their basic view is that nothing is important enough to raise taxes on wealthy individuals or corporations. and they would prefer to see these kinds of cuts that could slow down our recovery over closing tax loopholes. >> republicans, however, maintained that the seques
we can do on a frequent basis. the left does this all the time. obama talked out john boehner, we just had a meeting, look what a bipartisan i am. he is not handing john boehner a victory. in a certain sense he is because he is elevating john boehner to the power of the presidency by having 1-on-1 conversations and it feeds john boehner an end which is why he is no longer doing anything but john boehner doesn't get a win out of that. obama gets the win because he gets to come out and see what a bipartisan guy i am. i was in a room with these folks and we had a nice conversation and told him he was a jackass and i threw him out. but a bipartisan guy i am. it isn't over. is the inaugural was we're going to reach out to the other side and make things, if things don't happen then that is their fault. thank you for that bipartisanship but he is smart, understands the tactic, something we ought to be doing at the same time, and the victories that mean nothing. is fine. you can do that and not feel bad about it. there is the ninth point, to try to reverse the larry of staff as possible i
boehner. john boehner himself has said that this will be a disaster. orrin hatch, republican from utah said this week talking to a local newspaper that he thinks this will be a disaster. i think that even rand paul when it comes to his rhetoric on the sequester is part of a very small minority of even republicans, because i think there is bipartisan agreement that this is a real problem, that the american mainstream regular folks are going to feel a real pinch, and it's going to do harm to the economy, the military and public needs. i think rand paul is in the minority on this one. >> of course, the end of march is certainly going to do something as well. they're going to have to figure out what to do with the budget there. in fact, i want to put it to both of you. what happens when we're approaching another deadline at the end of march and this time to avoid a government shutdown? >> well, ed, as i said on the show some time ago, i think we're in for two years of the craziest behavior we've ever seen in washington. not until we get another election are we going to get some sort of sen
into a tailspin. thank you, john boehner. what do you say, everybody? guess what. it's a fred. ♪ alleluia. ♪ >> damn straight friday february 22nd. ♪ alleluia. >> bill: and we love fridays here at the bill press show. ♪ alleluia. ♪ >> bill: i am sure you do as well. for some of you, a short week for you rest of us we are taking a look at the big stories of the day and giving you a chance to sound off and tell us what you think about it. 866-55-press is our toll-free number. congress comes back in session next week. they don't come back until tuesday. the sequester kicks in until friday. we will see if they can get anything done. i doubt it very very much in those three days that they are here. they like the sequester. they want it to happen. they want employees to lose their job at the pentagon. they want the economy to go in a tailspin. they want headstart and the pel grants and tsa and air traffic controllers and you name it across the board. they want them all to be severely cut medicare social security. it could be happen. we will ta
. with the budget sequester that would tut a trillion dollars from the budget, speaker of the house john boehner warned of dire consequences if it's allowing to through. a wall street journal opinion piece, you'll be shocked to hear blamed the entire mess on president obama. boehner named just a couple of things that he pushed through the house must be avoided. it threatens u.s. national security, thousands of jobs and more. america's military budget would be slashed, border security, law enforcement, aviation safety and many other programs would all have diminished resources. now a they have to do is gray to cut a matching trillion dollars plus out of programs like social security which voters overwhelmingly want untouched and boehner and the republicans will make the sequester go away. well, that's not going to happen. shouldn't the speaker be willing to compromise and take it off the table even if that meant to graying to revenue hikes tax increases for those who can easily afford tax increases? apparently that's not going to happen either. meanwhile, in action is having its consequences. the
decisions. >> in a letter to john boehner, leon panetta warned their deductions would put us on a pass to a hollow force. and john kerry said the fiscal impact threatens america's credibility. >> there is nothing in this current budget fight that requires us to make bad decisions. >> military -- a military analyst said the impact will not only be felt globally but especially on the local level. >> many of the defense department's civilian jobs are not in washington. they are at shipyards and at military vehicle depots. there at financing centers, at local bases and installations around the country so this affects all 50 states. >> and civilian workers would be exempted from the furloughs like those in combat zones or essential personnel. >> we are trying to track down maryland's newest millionaire. >> the winning ticket was sold in mount airy. we will give you more details when we return. >> this time wearing something other than a helmet and shoulder pads getting ready to step back into the spotlight. >> another big lottery area in our area. >> officials say the winning ticket was bou
of head start and make tunnel the cuts to education. >> speaspeaker john boehner fird back saying last month the president got the higher taxes on the wealthy and is back for more. the american people understand revenue debate is closed. close the loophole and carve out attack code but it should be used to lower rate across the board. enter the former cochair of the president tet commission that up vailed a new version of the plan today to save $2 $2.4 trillion. double the sequester. they want more spending cut than the president wants and warned mr. obama's legacy will be tarnished if he doesn't act on social security and medicare. >> if he wants to leave it alope and not deal with the biggies, he will have a failed presidency. >> since simpson-bowles called for $600,000 in tax revenue, they say it obligates the g.o.p. claim to balance the budget without doing both. >> there is criticism of the president for not reaching out today. outreach on immigration. >> kerfuffle at the briefing because senator rubio office said they never heard from the white house on immigration. white house
. >> then john boehner says he was willing to close loopholes in the tax code but only if the revenue obtained from that was used to lower income tax rates. today, president obama framed the choice this way. >> so now republicans in congress face a simple choice. are they willing to compromise to protect vital investments in education and health care and national security, and all the jobs that depend on them? or would they rather put hundreds of thousands of jobs and the entire economy at risk just to keep the special tax benefits that benefit only the wealthest corporations and the richest. >> that sounds like a choice, to president obama, but republicans think it is more complicated. >> yeah, i guess it is the way we'll do things now, they want the medicare cuts, they want to beat him up. they want things they know democrats will never vote for. and i think more than that they just want to complain the president is mean, a bully, i'm really not sure there is a purpose for this. we know there is a history for this. he talked about it, the last time it happened they literally waited until the
these things called victory committees. whether john boehner or abraham has a victory committee it can be connected to other committees. they could raise potentially from one donor a $1 million contribution and spread it out to the other candidates and republican parties whether the democratic or republican party. it allows the candidate to solicit a $1 million. >> michael: which is extraordinary. we know republicans are bringing this case. but we know people like floyd abrams and others have not-limiting this as a free speech issue. where do they stand on free speech. >> there is a divide and has been ever since sandra day owe o'connor left, and replaced that's how they came down in cities eyecitizens united and it looks that's how they'll come down in mccutcheons. >> michael: now we return to the campaign front where mark sanford is fine tuning his campaign message for the house seat. he's turning that pesky negative, the one about running off to argentina to visit your mistress while telling everyone you're taking, he's turning it into talking points. >> i absolutely failed in my pe
cuts. meanwhile, speaker john boehner is out with an op-ed in today's "wall street journal" entitled "the president is reigning against a budget crisis he created." the same budget crisis speaker boehner and 173 of his house republicans voted for back in 2011. as a reminder, this is how he described the deal at the time. >> you know, i got 98% of what i wanted. i'm pretty happy. >> what is making speaker boehner unhappy with the present situation? quote, no one should be talking about raising taxes when the government is still paying people to play video games, giving folks free cell phones, and buying $47,000 gre cigarette-smoking machines. joining me, ezra klein of "the washington post." ezra, we need your help. actually, everybody needs your help. ezra, what's the deal with the sequester? we have, like, six different ways of reading this. on one hand, there's a chicken little stance that everything's going to end on march 1st. there are these drastic draconian cuts that are going to take place. on the other hand, there's a new theory of late, which is nothing is really going to ha
. and guess what today? president obama actually dialed up republican leaders john boehner and mitch mcconnell to talk about the sequester. this is good. it's called communication. we'll have a full report coming up from our man in washington robert costa. remember how we told the other night about how federal workers are still getting pay raises despite a so-called pay freeze? it turns out federal worker pensions are facing huge unfunded liabilities that could bankrupt them and force a new taxpayer bailout. but on the whole, folks, have no fear, america. help is on the way. this is "the kudlow report" and it starts right now. >>> all right. first up tonight the sky is not falling. even the president's own press secretary backed up president obama's sequester threat of mass layoffs. take a listen to jay carney. >> we agree with the consensus estimates here again from private outside economic firms from the congressional budget office that say we would lose, the country would lose up to 750,000 jobs if the sequester were allowed to be implemented. >> talking about hundreds of thousands o
. >> the president did reach across the aisle this week most recently dialing up house speaker john boehner and senate minority leader mitch mcconnell yesterday. we don't know what was said in those calls, but we do know they didn't result in new meetings between the president and congressional leaders. both sides instead focusing on dominating this debate. >> democrats don't seem to understand that taxing americans dampens the economy. republicans don't seem to understand that massive unfocused cuts right now are going to slow down the economy. >> you seriously have to wonder whether anyone in washington, in the house and the senate, in the white house and the administration, republican, democrat, do they ever go outdoors? >> so the economic hammer falling at the end of the month. $85 billion in cuts. what will that mean to your wallet or your family? $619 million in cuts to the federal aviation administration which could result in major flight delays for travelers. $406 million in cuts to head start programs meaning 70,000 children losing access and potential layoffs of 14,000 teachers an
through on their plans to replace it. >> chris: house speaker john boehner and democratic whip steny hoyer, still no closer to a deal to avoid $85 billion in spending cuts on march 1st and we're back now with the panel. the man who literally wrote the book about the budget battle, put it to rest: whose idea was the sequester and did you ever think we'd actually get to this point? >> first, it was the white house, it was obama and jack lew and rob nabors who went to harry reid and said this is the solution but everyone has their fingerprint on this and it is everyone's -- the policy and it is law, what is important about it is, it is a governing travesty. the idea that you are going to go around and in random ways cut things and would be like a family that has to cut their budget, saying, let's cut the medicine that keeps the children alive. it is stupid. >> chris: kim, having said that it is stupid, what are the chances that we're actually going to reach march 1st and the sequester, the $85 billion in automatic cuts, will kick in and if it does, and if we begin to see, markets reacting and
